Yesterday was quite a monumental day for me as I actually went into the Pacific on a surfboard. People who know will be surprised as I never go into the water, I have a real fear which until now I hadn’t overcome. It all came as a bit of surprise really a few days ago I announced that I wanted to have a go so we went and got me a wetsuit. That was a commitment as I would have hated to waste the money and not used it.
With the help and patience of the King of Peru I went quite way out on the board and when I knew I had enough for one day we came back in. There were a few nerves but I knew I was in very safe hands and I will be going out again soon.
After that it was a celebratory drinks on the beach and then a Pizza at our local restaurant. All in all a very good day.
This morning it was breakfast at the local market a fried egg sandwich and a gorgeous juice to make everything feel better!! I have this into a new tradition and I do love a good tradition!!!
It has been a very chilled day and we had some of favourite food for lunch Chicken soup (Peruvian style) which is so good followed by yellow potato puree (unique to Peru), fried egg, rice and fried banana. Comfort food at its best served with a cold Cusquena!!
Tomorrow we will be off to Lima for the weekend so I will be visiting the Indian markets and having a few cocktails along the way.
Me ready to surf!!
Juices served in the local market
All prepared by Vicky, here she is at work.
The finished product fried egg sandwich and a Tuna & Granadilla juice. This juice is amazing and is especially good when you have an upset tummy.
Having a chilled day wearing Juliet Dunn, Melissa Odabash and Havaianas.
A delicious lunch and a cold Cusquena!
